This 1937 Cadillac Series 60 Convertible Coupe is impeccably built and tastefully customized restomod that recently underwent an extensive professional frame-off restoration. When the 1937 Cadillac line was introduced to the public in November of 1936, the United States appeared to perhaps be emerging from the vast economic downturn caused by the Great Depression. See, the effects of the Great Depression on American luxury automakers, like Cadillac, were significant. In fact, by November 1936 many of the luxury auto manufacturers, such as Peerless, Marmon, Stutz, and Pierce-Arrow had already gone out of business, and others, such as, Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg, were on the imminent brink of failure. To survive, the remaining luxury automobile manufacturers such as Packard and LaSalle, and later Cadillac, introduced entry-level vehicles that offered similar ritzy styling but were more affordable and accessible to general buying public. For Cadillac, that introductory vehicle was the Series 60 which was smaller, shorter, lighter, and less powerful, but it was also more affordable and offered the level of quality and craftsmanship that was synonymous with Cadillac. By the time 1937 rolled around, the economy began to rebound and Cadillac’s entry level offerings enabled the company to survive the downturn. The 1937 Series 60 retained a similar body style from the previous year but was outfitted with a new “eggcrate” grille and louvers were added to the sides of the hood. This particular Series 60 Convertible comes to us after it an extensive professional frame-off restoration. During this extremely recent restoration, the car was tastefully restomodded with fantastic upgrades and customizations that make this car an absolute joy to drive. Under the hood on this ’37 Cadillac is a 6.2 Liter LS3 V8 GM Performance crate engine with electronic fuel injection that is specced out to produce 430 horsepower. The 6.2L LS3 is mated to a 4L60 Automatic Transmission ensuring that anybody can take this custom Cadillac for a spin around the block.
